«We need to talk directly with oil companies to get their view on these matters. Decommissioning and P&A represent enormous costs. It is expected that a close cooperation between oil companies and their suppliers can cut costs significantly», says Marit Dolmen, RD&I Manager at GCE NODE.
Several NODE companies are looking into this evolving market – a few are already operating in it.
«Decommissioning and P&A are still in an early phase. NODE companies have the expertise and experience to be important players in what will be a huge market. A close relationship with the oil companies could spark new innovations and prove beneficiary for all», says Dolmen.
